What should be the Ideal Browser cache storing time?


#1

Hello there,

I recently came across the Term ‘Leverage Browser Caching’, the thing which allows websites to store content Locally On the Users browsers.

In the Cloudflare Caching panel, what should be the Ideal duration for Storing Browser Cache.

My Website is a Personal Blog with new Articles/Posts every 4-5 days. What should be the Ideal Browser caching duration for my site?

The browser cache shouldn’t affect whether or not new blog posts show up on your site, since it will bypass the local cache no matter what for the first request. The only thing you should worry about is whether or not you’re using cache busting to serve up-to-date files to your visitors. If you’re using Ghost as your publishing platform, or a “good” wordpress plugin, then you should have no issue with setting browser cache duration high.
